The Moonshine Trust are a powerful four piece band out of Perth, Western Australia playing a fusion of rock and blues  in their original songs, and reworks of classics.
Featuring a well oiled rhythm section, a killer guitarist and the raunchy sound of the sax and harmonica,
they guarantee to get the place rocking.

Trust us to rock the Mountie 

The Trust are heading back to the Mount Helena Tavern on Friday the 4th of March. We will be featuring our new drummer Aaron Waters who brings a wealth of talent and experience to the band. Aaron is an accomplished singer/songwriter, guitarist and dynamic drummer to boot. Expect some new songs, solid grooves and Aarons vocals to really rock up the Mountie. See ya there!

Spuds a gun! 

We have been quiet lately while we work in our new drummer Ian "Spud" Murphy. His style is straight ahead and our sound has evolved accordingly.
Expect a more rocked up sound when next you hear us play. Gigs are scarce and we are itching to play. 2 Shows at the Wheatstone construction camp for Chevron will get us started for the summer season.

Rocking Out In Roleystone 

A big thank you to the Roleystone Musicians Club for hosting the Moonshine Trust last night. We had a great time playing to a fun audience in what is a really good little room at the Roleystone football Club rooms. There where some talented new performers and a few familiar faces amongst the punters. The Bar Studs set the night up with a standout set and it was great to see Tim and Greg again.Thanks to the sound guys and bar staff, we will see you again soon.
If you want good music, cheap drinks and only $5 entry, get along to the Monthly performances at the Poleystone Musos Club.

Murfing Tones 

We are sad to say that Tony Edwards has resigned from the band. Stand in drummer Ian Murphy has taken on the task to get us through the upcoming gigs.
We wish Tony well in the future.


Playing on the same show with your mates is always fun. We love it when we get the chance to do it. It kicks up the vibe a notch or two when you are listening to your friends and getting off on their stuff and then you get to have a play as well. So folks we have some mid week shows coming up with the fabulous Kickstart Cadillacs on Feb 14 at the Universal Bar, and then with The Bonekickers at the Centuria on March 11. It is gonna be a party so get along for a coldie or two rock on with these great bands and The Trust.

Blues at Bridgetown Goes Off 

The Moonshine Trust played to packed gigs through the weekend blues festival in Bridgetown and enjoyed tremendous feed back from audiences at all four shows. Armed with a new EP of five original songs showcasing our style of tough,hard driving blues, we had an absolute ball rocking out and CD sales were really strong at the gigs. A couple of punters descibed our music as Australia's original Bluemetal, being a combo of blues, metal and rock! . Well we will take any description folks want to give us because it is definitely a different sound, and definitely ORIGINAL.
Soon we will have our CD for sale online through this website, so stay tuned if you want a copy.

Original Songs Going Strong 

We have had a great reaction from audiences to our original sets at the Swan Hotel, The Railway and The Rosemount Hotels. More new songs and shows coming up. Check out JJJ unearthed and give us some love folks.

Falls Tavern Rocks 

We had a great night at the Noble Falls Tavern rocking out with an enthusiastic local crowd last thursday night.
It's a great little pub that has top food and a very laid back vibe, but is building a rep as the place to party and see a band in the Hills.
It's not so far out of the way and well worth the visit. We hope to be back there soon.

New semi-acoustic shows. 

Most people know us as a band with a big sound and presence. You know, PJ ripping on his Les Paul  guitar with Tony and Brad pounding out the beat and  me wailing on the sax or blues harp.
What you didn't know is that we have put together a semi-acoustic show for small venues.
We swap the drum kit for Bongos and Jembes and percussion, the Les Paul for amplified acoustic guitar and then pull the sound in tight with the bass and sax.
It is a different vibe with emphasis on the groove and laid back solos that wont pin your ears back.
Expect the same songs and the same enthusiasm and fun, with a few new surprises folks.
Check us out sometime soon.
